Rorii...just for you aptly describe their behaviour as being "unexpected changes that you cannot control" if you have a child psychology degree, please let us know why these 14 and 17 year youths have behaved in the manner in which they have, other than what you have just described. There is no point in saying something is wrong without saying why. 

I don't see PN describing them as serial thieves. 

I suggest you consult scholarly articles on juvenile delinquency before you embark on your usual senseless remarks.

Joe12, just for you
vagaries: "unexpected changes that you cannot control." Hardly what I, am I suggest most people, would consider describes these thieves, actually, described by PN as serial thieves. I guess another example of you being WRONG, also doing the same as that ex-editor, from that failed Phuket blog site, using you own definitions. Are you his clone?

Jogi...I find that PN articles to be of a high standard so don't feel the need to comment nor is there any point in it. I comment to correct the senseless garbage that is written by commentators that contain innuendo, are factually incorrect or disrespectful to the Thai people...same as your comments here. The "vagaries of youth" are not confined to Thai's as you suggest. It's common in any country.  For example:

The kids could have told their parents the bikes belonged to their friends given that the article does not state that the parents were charged with the receiving of the stolen goods or being an accessory to the thefts. So it's only innuendo on your part. 

Commentators can say what they like, but don't expect me to sit idly by and not correct the senseless garbage that is written and if you don't like it then too bad.

Yes Jogi, that was indeed my thinking. You are very right.
Boys of that age parking 6 motorbikes at home, +  3 were already sold.
As a parent I would question my 14 year old son about the 6 motorbikes.
It has nothing to do with a 24/7 watch by parents, as you mentioned very well. 
That is just drama rubbish of someone who likes to pull matters in a wrong context

@Joe12 what would you do if Kurt stop his comment's on Phuket News? would you start to comment yourself on new's?  by the way, like me he sure was not followed 24/7 by his parent. with 14 and 17 there home would be the home of there parents, where the bike's was hidden. Joe12 my parent (and i guess Kurt's to) would ask question's about this  bike's. give's me the feeling your parent would not. my parent's did not now THAINESS and how to breed criminal's

Joe12 | 21 September 2016 - 15:14:24, did you have your parents follow you around 24/7? It's what's termed the "vagaries of youth".

Ages 14 and 17. Very promising. Where were the parents?
If I had done that at such age, wow. 
I would have faced the music at home, not yet talking about legal consequences.
